Compensation Claim in Oldham


Compensation Claim in Oldham?

Some of the most commonly searched for phrases on Google and other search engines are terms like “compensation claim Oldham“, which are searched for by people who have suffered an injury that wasn’t their fault. The reason that “compensation claim Oldham” and the likes are so often searched for is because the law states that if you do suffer and injury that was somebody else’s fault then you are entitled to pursue a compensation claim, Oldham resident or otherwise. Despite this being a fairly fundamental law however, the majority of people do not really understand the compensation process and this is why they have to resort to searching for “compensation claim Oldham” on Google in order to get the ball rolling on their personal injury claim. What this article aims to do therefore, is to clear up some of the common misconceptions about compensation and to suggest a better starting point for personal injury compensation claimants.

I Can’t Claim, My Injury was Months Ago

One common misconception about compensation claims is that you have to make a claim immediately after an incident and if more than a few weeks have passed since an incident and you have had your injury treated, then you can no longer claim. This however, is entirely untrue on both counts. You do actually have period of three years from any given incident in which you can make a compensation claim, and if the injury occurred when you were a minor or if your claim relates to an industrial disease then even this limit is lifted. Secondly, there is absolutely no reason why getting your injury treated would negatively impact your ability to claim compensation and the opposite can in fact be true as the documentary evidence produced when you get an injury treated by a professional does often work in your favour as proof of the extent of your injury.

Finding the Right Lawyer is Too Much Hassle

Another common reason that people give for not pursuing a compensation claim is that it is too difficult to find a personal injury lawyer to take on their claim, but this is wholly untrue too. Rather than searching out a local lawyer to trust your claim to you can instead deal with your claim entirely over the phone by contacting nationally renowned Accident Advice Helpline.
